Tutorial Courses back to page top
13:30 - 16:30, Dec. 22
Lecturer: Hiroaki WAGATSUMA (Kyusyu Institute of Technology)
Overview: This tutorial will give a short lecture for the standardization of multi-time scale (different sampling rate) timeseries obtained in the simltaneous recording, which is expected to add annotations to data epoches by usuing with meta-data descriptions. Participants exprience and learn
i) the procedure of the data conversion of the human EEG data (.mat) and Eye-Tracking data (.json) to a single package of the standard format based on NIX (.nix) with given annotations on odML,
ii) programming to extract a specific target data of interest (NIX data access method) and visualize it in plot,
iii) data analysis of the target data, generation of a new meta data label depending on the interest and re-embed the new metadata into the NIX format data.
The data and sample codes will be provided in the session. MATLAB (nix-mx) and Java (nix-java) are also available in the system; however we are using the python software tools in the tutorial.
A limit in the number of participants: possibly 20 (30 as maximum)
Requirements of participants:
- Experience of the use of linux or mac and python programming.
(windows PC is acceptable under the following condition.)
- Participants are recommended to install "nixio" (as follows) in their own laptops if the PC are unix or mac (the instration will be done for 5-10mins), while if it is windows, the setting of python environment, installations and the software dependency check is taking time a lot. Therefore, if it is windows, participants must complete to install "nixio" in their windows PCs by themselves according to the installation manual in the web (*).
The simplest way to install NIXPY is from PyPI using pip, like
pip install nixio #python2
pip3 install nixio #python3
(*) Neuroscience information exchange format - NIX:
-data model for storing fully annotated datasets

Lecturers: Hidetoshi IKENO (University of Hyogo) and Tomoki KAZAWA (The University of Tokyo)
Overview: This tutorial will give basic skills for the image processing using the confocal image data for constructing a standard brain map of small insect brain. Its applications will be also presented. We are using several software tools for the image processing and visualization.
A limit in the number of participants: 10
Requirements of participants:
- Their notebook PC needed on the day.
Note: The tutorial will be conducted in Japanese and used a Japanese text book “昆虫の脳をつくる”. We will prepare materials based on the book for the day.

Lectures: Keiichiro INAGAKI (Chubu University), Takayuki KANNON (Kanazawa University) and Yoshihiro OKUMURA (RIKEN CBS)
Overview: This tutorial will give a short lecture for collaborative large-scale modeling and a hands-on using computer cluster. In the lecture, we/participants parallelize the several program code for brain system, connecting them using neuroinformatics tools, and simulate as one large-scale model in the computer cluster.
A limit in the number of participants: We expect 5-8 participants. If we have received more applications that expected, we will select the participants based on background and experience.
Requirements of participants:
- Participants must have laptop with installing ssh to log onto our computer cluster.
- Experience of the use of linux and c/c++ programming.
Note: Part of lecture might be performed in Japanese.
